Prominent Assignments

Lynn represented a young wife and mother in a high-stakes and highly contested divorce case. The husband went to great lengths in his attempts to minimize the marital estate, obstruct discovery relative to his business and hide his numerous infidelities. After committing perjury during the trial the husband accepted a settlement that was extremely beneficial to the wife and was ordered to pay 100 percent of the wife’s attorney and expert fees in a post-judgment ruling by the judge.

Lynn represented a husband in a divorce in which the wife challenged the parties’ prenuptial agreement and sought the husband’s separate property and retained earnings of the business. Despite every effort to settle outside of the courtroom the case ended up in trial. Lynn, according to the husband, received 150% of the relief he sought from the court.
